  • Does this wire into my existing wiring centre?

    No, the smart wiring centre replaces any existing wiring centre so no additional wall space is required.

  • Is this a fully modulating control?

    Yes, the Halo Combi 2-Zone control is one of the only controls in the market that is fully modulating on both heating zones.

  • Do I need to run a switched live demand to the boiler?

    No, as the Smart Wiring Centre communicates wirelessly to the Smart Interface that is connected to the boiler there is no need to run a wire from the wiring centre to the boiler.

  • Can this be fitted to other manufacturers boilers?

    We have fine-tuned the Halo control range to ensure it gives maximum energy savings when paired with an Ideal Heating boiler. These savings would not be the same using another manufacturers boiler so we don't recommend using the Halo controls range with anything other than an Ideal Heating boiler.

  • I have a hot water cylinder, will this kit control my hot water?

    Central heating systems that have a hot water cylinder work in a different way to systems that run from a combi boiler. The Halo Combi controls range can't control a hot water cylinder but keep your eyes peeled for the launch of Halo Heat & System later on in 2021.

  • Can I still control my heating through Amazon Alexa/Google Home?

    Yes, if you have installed a Halo Combi Wi-Fi 2-Zone system then you can still control both central heating zones through smart home assistants.
